Kimi ni Todoke 10
September 22, 2011
Karuho Shiina – Viz – 2011 – 14+ volumes
Seriously. I had an adorable overload while reading this volume. There’s a good number of confessions. They were all so sweet I thought my teeth were going to rot out of my head. The first one is picture perfect, one of the best confession scenes in any shoujo manga I’ve read. Sawako and Kazehaya really are too much for words.
Unfortunately, I can’t really get more detailed than that, because I don’t want to spoil it.
I will say that the entire school joins in some good-natured teasing in the second half of the volume. While Sawako doesn’t really seem to mind, I would have absolutely died if this had happened to me. This was the stuff my high school nightmares were made of. Seriously. I wouldn’t have been able to show my face back at school in that situation.
But seriously. If you like shoujo manga, do yourself a favor and pick this up. This is one of the best series I’ve ever read in terms of pleasant, happy stories and straight-up uncomplicated shoujo romance. There are bumps along the way, but every step of the road to getting Sawako and Kazehaya together was worth taking, and every volume is an absolute pleasure to read.
